The Weekend Desk Report

Natasha Julius is away this weekend on a mission of national import, so I'm filling in. One clue: the first, fifth and seventh letters to her name. We hope she returns soon.

DRose By Any Other Name Is Jay Cutler
Bulls former star and standardized test activist Derrick Rose will have an MRI on Saturday while the rest of the city will be given oxygen. At least that will distract the whiners from being reminded they live in Chicago.

Shot Across The Bow
Madigan Warns Of Fake 'Charities.'

Red Flag: Excessive promises about children.

Kid Stuff
The Chicago Toy & Game Fair is this weekend at Navy Pier's Festival Hall. Here's what we're excited to check out:

  • Parker Brothers to introduce Chicago City Council game with 3D-printed rubber stamps and non-stain ink that doesn't leave fingerprints.
  • The Chicago version of Monopoly's new Chance card: You're mentally ill, go directly to Cook County Jail.
  • The Ventra 4 Kids card: Teach kids what it's like to be an adult; every time they tap, money is deducted from their allowance - sometimes twice!
  • The new Chicago Chess Board: All the black squares are on side and the white squares on the other. There is only one king and moves aren't allowed without his permission. There are nearly 3 million pawns, but for practicality's sake they are represented by 50 bishops. Wait, that's not new at all.

Enjoy!
